Intolerance

Dear Friends,

Please take a few minutes to read and act on this email.

On May 23rd 2001 the Taliban authorities in Afghanistan
confirmed that all Hindus will be required to wear a strip of
yellow cloth sewn onto a shirt pocket in order to identify
themselves. They claim that the measure is for their
"protection". The world has faced this before, in 1939
the world was required, at great cost, to rid itself of Hitler's
tyranny, it is not hard to spot his child. Those who fail to
learn from history are condemned to relive it.

The Taliban's record on respecting other religions gives
great cause for concern that their ultimate aim, upon which
they are intent, is "religious cleansing". They have already
demonstrated their distain and intolerance for other religions
and traditions by the desecration and destruction of the ancient
Buddhist statues, our collective heritage, within the Afghanistan.
Whatever your religion, or even if you have none, we hope
that you will agree that this fundamentally wrong. Remember,

"All it takes for evil to triumph is for
good men to do nothing".

Please do not do nothing, add your voice.

DIRECTIONS: PLEASE COPY this email on to a new
message, add your name and those of your household
who wish to participate to the bottom and forward it to
everyone on your distribution list. If you receive this
petition and you find that you will be the 251st name on it,
please e-mail a copy of it to:

alastair@om-int.com.

It will then be forwarded to the UN.

Even if you decide not to sign, please be considerate
and do not kill the petition as you will be denying your
friends, and theirs, their legitimate voice. Instead return
it to alastair@om-int.com

To The Secretary General, Security
Council and General Assembly of the United Nations.

We the undersigned are appalled by the decision of the
Taliban government of Afghanistan to require all Hindus
to wear a piece of yellow cloth sewn onto a shirt pocket
in order to identify themselves. An individual's communion
with God, however they find him, is a matter of
personal conscience and must not be the subject of intimidation
or persecution. The right of everyone to worship as they
wish is fundamental and inalienable. The United Nations
was founded in order to defeat Hitler and his henchmen
who required the same from another religion with all it's
horrific consequences. It is completely unacceptable that
nearly 60 years later history is repeating itself.

We ask the following:

1. That the Taliban government is made aware in the
strongest possible terms that the world will not countenance
this perversion of human rights.

2. That prior to the United Nations and/or it's
constituent members granting recognition of the Taliban
government this obscene policy is reversed.

3. That the United Nations widen the terms of the trade
sanctions currently in force.

I remember hearing about this and discussing it in my government class. It reeks of injustice and repetition of history. I'm wondring though, what happens when multiple people copy this and there are multiplt number 100's and so on throught the other numbers? I guess it doesn't matter too much but I was just wondering.
